I am thrilled to share with you my new love, the 226 black reissue with ghw.

My journey back to Chanel started last year, when I bought my black classic jumbo (I had two other Chanel bags back then, but I hadn't purchased a Chanel bag in 9 years!). I had been rigorously researching about it, discovered TPF, and was well on my way to learning more and purchasing a few more bags. I must admit that I didn't love the reissue at first, but after seeing so many gorgeous reveals and hearing about many TPF members' love for the reissue, I too fell in love. I thought it was a passing phase, but my love for the reissue only grew stronger over the months.

Although I really struggled between this and the Lady Dior (some of you may remember that previous thread), I am so glad I decided on the reissue. My SA at 57th Street even showed me three different ones, and this one was destined to be mine. It had the perfect amount of distressing, right shape, and shiny hardware.

Without further ado, my gorgeous new baby:

Congratulations. I have the exact same piece and it's probably one of my favorites. It's the leather and color and hardware that makes it feel extra classy.

I hope you enjoy it in good health!
